Hey, you’ve worked hard these past few days: crafting homemade gifts, decking out your holiday table, baking cookies and wrapping presents. Reward yourself with today’s handmade idea: homemade eggnog. (Not into eggnog? Check out all 15 of our holiday cocktails.)

Rumpope cocktail recipe

This Ecuadorian-style version, rumpope (pronounced “rom-poe-pay”), uses eggs, condensed milk, peaches, vanilla extract and cinnamon to create a sweet, silky beverage that’s perfect for cool winter nights by the fire. Add rum for an adults-only gathering, or serve it on the side so guests of all ages can enjoy this holiday treat. Enjoy!
